Had this album on vinyl which I loved to listen to but my sister took it back!!When I saw it on cd I was well happy and had to buy it. It is a mixture of tracks like 'Blinded by the Light' which most people know and are a little upbeat.Also 'Questions' which is lovely to listen to and lose yourself in the lyrics.So pleased I have my own copy now.

Simply the best production on Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Simply magic from the first note to the last. Highly recommended not only to people who appreciate Manfred Mann but also to progressive rock and jazz rock fans.

Manfred Mann, born and raised in South Africa and relocated to London at the age of 21, was almost like a driver of an international band bus on the road to various musical destinations for over 20 years. The bus was filled with different crew members at certain stages and with charismatic fronts-men. The keyboard playing driver was extremely skilled in spotting and attracting such talent allowing all band incarnations to stay in a spotlight of their name recognition.

After the very successful pop hit making career of the 1960s and a very brief jazz rock oriented MM Chapter 3 stage, Manfred Mann changed name to Manfred Mann's Earth Band in 1971 and released six albums prior to the introduction of The Roaring Silence in 1976. The sound of Manfred Mann's Earth Band from its 1971 beginnings embraced the rapidly developing new style of progressive rock. Manfred Mann was actually the very first musician in England to have used the mellotron on record back in March of 1967 to generate the sounds of flute, trombone and strings. Moody Blues' Days Of Future Past album from September of 1967 is usually credited with that honor, because they had used it on LP album and MM on a single.

Manfred Mann's creativity was centered as much on song writing as on re-writing. Many of best songs by Manfred Mann's Earth Band were picked by Manfred from already released albums by various musicians. About half of all MMEB came from other people's repertoire. Manfred Mann was famous for doing best Bob Dylan covers and he also covered songs by Bruce Springsteen and vice versa, with a lot of mutual respect between these artists.

Another 'I remember when' review, but revisiting this album 38 years since first hearing it, I still have nothing but praise for it. From the opening 7-minute full version of Springsteen's Blinded By The Light until the closing Questions, are 7 tracks of the highest quality prog-infested MMEB. The compositions, shared by several band members, are generally thoughtful with a subtle attack free from pomp and bluster. Perhaps the wildest moment is Barbara Thompson's sax solo on Singing The Dolphin Through, a slow beautiful Mike Heron song that slips by serenely.
Like all the musicians' playing, Chris Thompson's singing is perfectly understated throughout, strong but without any theatrics or hysteria. On the instrumental Waiter, There's A Yawn In My Ear, the musicians cut loose (on the vinyl, this closed side one with style and gusto. There are no weak moments on this album which should be a fixture in every prog afficiando's collection. You should not need too many listens to love this masterpiece. This cd re-issue includes the bonus tracks of Spirits In The Night and the single edit of Blinded By The Light.
Oh, and those '70s synthesizer sounds make me smile with every listen.
